    Im so excited!!! Phase two.. is the 2nd phase in a set of 3 so far... phase 1 never got started because the tractor just never got fixed!!! phase 1 is supposed to be 50 aviaries... One day.. one day... Phase 3 happend 1st, which were chick pens...

    phase 2 is almost done... Should be ready to go in 2 or 3 weeks... It will focus on Peacocks and a few pheasants... Its a total of 20 Aviaries...

    The Plumbing took FOREVER!!! but each pen has automatic watering with floater... its a neat setup my dad and I came up with... There is a Master drain at the end of the pens... all water is connected to each other... when its time for cleaning... we open the main exit valve and all the water goes flowing out... easy cleaing... and since its auto matic filling... we never have to water...

    Today we started framing, after work of corse... and in 3 hours... we only framed 2 walls... I cant belive it took forever.. but If my brother in law and I planed it correctly, we should be done in 2 or 3 weeks... we plan on working every day after work starting at 6pm til it gets dark... its WAY to hot during the day... It always feels like I got soaked with a hose... thats how sweaty I get.

    Ill post pictures once Im done from start to finish...

    That sounds amazing! I hope you post lots of pictures!

    We still have to get the top put on our pen but it sounds like yours is putting ours to shame!
